What a treat! The staff were amazing, the cabins very nice (including a Yeti filled with all sorts of drinks), and the food was fantastic. We had a great horseback ride - not a nose to tail ride at all -and learned to fly fish on Flat Creek. They give you equipment and you can go whenever you wish. Guided hikes are offered and you can hike on your own (there's bear spray in each cabin). Canoe or paddle board on the beautiful little lake. Worth every penny. I'd love to go again.
My family (wife, two boys 13 & 15, and I) had an amazing trip to the Flat Creek Ranch in late June. A ranch trip was on our family vacation bucket list, and we chose this one because of the beautiful, unique setting and reviews. I also liked how we could spend less than a full week -- which allowed us to spend time in Jackson before driving to the ranch. This was a totally new travel experience and budget level....and totally worth it. I'll touch on a few things: Lodging: Staying in cabins with over 100 year old history was fascinating. They were obviously rustic but restored to a pristine, even luxurious, condition. The Cissy Cabin was perfect for our family. Check out Google Maps for 360 images of several cabins and grounds. Activities: After visiting the busy national parks, it was refreshing to hike with only our small group. Staff & horses made for a very chill and enjoyable ride. We liked the lake watercraft (SUPS, kayaks, canoes, etc.). Finally, fishing was good, though if you want a more guaranteed catch, you may want a guided session. People: The staff (Trey, Shelby, Dani, Scott, Daniel, etc. and guests were wonderful. We enjoyed the friendly and relaxed vibe among everyone. My wife was dealing with long-haul Covid/mono, and they made special accommodations to ensure that she had a wonderful stay. She truly felt cared for by all of the staff (with a special shout-out to Dani). Dining/Lodge: It was an amazing treat to walk a few steps to the lodge (no car, no UTV, no cart) where we were spoiled by Chef Daniel!!! Not only is he a fabulous and creative cook, but he is also a good guy who makes you feel connected to the food experience. It's worth knowing that meals are eaten with the guests and hosts (so about 16 people gather around two tables). That was a new experience for us, and we enjoyed it. Service: Small touches like coffee dropped at our cabin in the AM. Sending a pre-trip questionnaire to allow you to share preferences (e.g. food allergies or food requests). Tips: Stay in Jackson 2-3 nights ahead of your visit. You'll be in the groove & used to the altitude. They provide great concierge recommendations for the surrounding area. Highly recommend FCR!!!!!…
This place is simply wonderful. Flat Creek Ranch ticked all the boxes for us. Great food, locally sourced, inventive, we were never hungry (check!), direct, unlimited access to fishing on a private creek and stunning lake (check!), top notch service with unforgettable personality (check!), small in size but big on inclusive amenities, fishing, hiking, horses, and more (check!), elegant yet charming (check!)… Flat Creek Ranch absolutely exceeded our expectations. We plan to return someday soon!
My Husband and I were blessed with best cabin there. Josephine. We had a view from bedroom of lake and mountains. I enjoyed watching an Osprey scoop down and grab a fish and be chased by bald eagle one morning. On a group hike to Teton Overlook we saw an incredible Mule Deer. Our first night at the ranch we were spoiled with dinner under the stars, taking in the lake while enjoying best Lamb and chicken we have ever had in our lives. Spoiled by all the creative fresh meals every day. Staff were polite and friendly. Cabins were clean and stocked.
My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary at the ranch. We took the advice and did a few days exploring the parks and the town of Jackson prior to arrival at the ranch. The ranch exceeded our expectations. Great attention to detail like wildflowers on the morning coffee tray and a personal note accompanying a bottle of champagne was truly special. Daniel’s food is something I will never forget. Unforgettable horseback riding, hiking, and fishing. Thank you trey, Shelby, Daniel, tor, Jamie, munch, and the rest of the crew for a wonderful stay. We are referring all of our friends and family.
